Pastoral Staff

For some larger ministries, the Elders have determined that it is necessary for the shepherding and oversight of that ministry to be done by a full-time pastoral staff member. The Elders have searched for biblically qualified and gifted men to fill these roles.  All staff members are required to fulfill the qualities of a Deacon as expressed in I Timothy 3:8- 13 and be actively involved members of Grace Church of Dupage.
